Ogopogos seek players for Italian job

The Big O Tire Ogopogos hope to field one and perhaps two men’s soccer teams at the 2013 World Masters Games in Torino, Italy.

Ogopogo director Kerry Zubot says he hopes to get enough players for 50+ and 45+ entries in the tournament, Aug. 2-10. There will be a crucial meeting Saturday, 1 p.m., at the VantageOne indoor facility.

“The reason for the short notice meeting is there is an early bird registration before Jan. 21,” said Zubot.

“We would like to have everyone sign up at this meeting if possible on the World Masters website; there are also early bird lodging deals if required.”

Zubot urges people interested in going to Italy who are unable to attend the meeting, to call either himself at 549-5111 or 545-8341, Rob Ross (545-5344 or 558-1832) or Rob Culos (545-8148 or 549-7168) before Saturday’s gathering. Those making the meeting are asked to bring a credit card.

Meanwhile, the North Okanagan women’s soccer association registration meeting is Monday, Feb 11 at 6:30 p.m. at VantageOne. Teams require 11 waivers and a $1,000 deposit.
